Prayer by Raissa Maritain

My God I am here before Thee
I crumble into nothing before Thee
I adore Thy greatness
My need is immense
Have pity on me
Let Thy spirit dwell in me
Let the Holy Spirit live in me
The love of the Father and the Son
So that I may love Thee and Thou me
My God let my heart be pure
My intention be upright
My body be chaste
My God, let no one suffer through me,
May Thy truth enlighten me,
May Thy will be done.
Amen.
